Pavement, Tentpole Festival, Mt Dundeed Estate, 4th March 2023 by Mary Boukouvalas

In their decade-long early career, PAVEMENT released five era-defining albums – Slanted And Enchanted (1992), Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain (1994), Wowee Zowee (1995), Brighten The Corners (1997) and Terror Twilight (1999) – before disbanding in 1999. Hailed by music critic Robert Christgau as “the finest rock band of the ’90s”, Pavement’s 2010 reunion saw them play four sold out benefit shows in NYC’s Central Park, visit Australia, and top bills of festivals including Coachella, Reading & Leeds, Primavera Sound and Pitchfork. Cut Your Hair, Range Life, Gold Soundz, Stereo, Shady Lane, Spit On A Stranger … Pavement’s enduring influence was on show when they made their long-awaited live return at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound in June 2022, more than a decade since they last reunited.
